C’est Le Vin – imperfection can be charming.

Last week, the folks at C’est Le Vin complimented this blog and then pointed out that I hadn’t been to their restaurant yet. Since my patronage can be purchased with that kind of stroking, I went to visit them for lunch the next day. I took five friends with me.

It seems that most of the menu items are Italian inspired. The average price of lunch entrees was about $11.

The Twitter suggested I try the Four-Cheese Gnocchi. I did. It was good and there was lots of it for $10.

For the most part, everyone thought the food was very good.

One of my friends, at my prompting, ordered Panzanella. Panzanella is an italian bread salad. The Panzanella at C’est Le Vin had no bread. I assume that this was an odd glitch. My friend was too meek to say anything, so she has still never had panzanella…

The concept of this restaurant/wine shop/art gallery is cool. I am confident that the atmosphere here will get cooler with time and experience. I hope it does.

We had fun and the food I ate was good enough to merit a return visit.
I gave the experience 6,539 out of 7,899
